Israel: 20,000 attend Jerusalem’s Pride Parade amidst heavy security

August 3, 2018

As many as 20,000 people were reported to attend Jerusalem’s Pride march on Thursday, under heavy police protection.  This year’s pride parade reminds the fatal 2015 attack on marchers in the largely conservative city.

Sixteen year old Shira Banki was stabbed to death during the pride parade in 2015 by an ultra-Orthodox extremist.

This year’s pride parade marks large protest against the Israel’s new law that prohibits gay couple from using surrogacy.
